This year, halo rings have emerged as a popular choice in engagements rings, especially among celebrities. At the start of the year, Justin Timberlake popped the question to long-time girlfriend Jessica Biel with a custom-made halo ring. More recently, Emily Maynard received a cushion-shaped halo ring from Jef Holm on the season finale of “The Bachelorette”. Although halo rings are a classic style, it is their revamped shapes and colors that have lead to a surge in their popularity.
For example, after Kate Middleton’s diamond and sapphire halo engagement ring was made public last year, we saw halo rings in various colors pop up everywhere in 2012. Bold halo engagement rings, such as the double halo shown below, are definitely a a hot trend!

Tis the season for marriage proposals with Valentine’s Day around the corner! In honor of all of the lucky couples out there, I’ve compiled a list of the top TV marriage proposals. As you can see, many of them stray from my typical proposal do’s and don’ts, but through the magic of TV, all of them are still wonderful and still perfect, because she says yes!
1. Jim & Pam from The Office. My personal favorite – nothing was perfect and yet it was still perfect.
2. Charlotte & Harry from Sex and the City. No ring, no plan but all kinds of love!
3. Monica & Chandler from Friends. Proof that the proposal doesn’t have to start with the man! Click here for the clip.

Lee DeWyze, the sweet crooner from the 2010 season of American Idol, recently popped the question to Jonna Walsh. Here’s what he did right:
